Tagged: ical subscribe personal
I have a client who has hundreds of students and I’d like to provide them with an individual calendar link (ical subscribe-able) for all the courses they subscribed for. Any easy way to do that with your calendar, aka. not having to do it one by one?
Click the button that says “Use in iCal”.
Paste that into your web browser, and before hitting return add an ampersand, followed by the field name where the student name or ID lives, then the name or ID of the student.
So it will look like this:
That should filter the iCal feed just to that student. We’ve used this technique effectively by calculating this string and adding it to the student profile either in FileMaker Pro, or on an intranet site.
I believe, without having tested it explicitly, that the id field can be in a related join table if you indicate the join in the url (feed=ical&studs::studentid=1234). Also the field you’re filtering by MUST be on the data source layout, and shouldn’t contain any spaces.
